Bjørn Lomborg is adjunct professor at the Copenhagen Business School. He is the organizer of the Copenhagen Consensus Center, which brings together some of the world’s top economists, including 5 Nobel laureates, to set priorities for the world.
Lomborg is the author of the best-selling “The Skeptical Environmentalist” and “Cool it” in which he challenged mainstream concerns about the environment and pointed out that we need to focus attention on the most important problems first. In his documentary film “Cool it” award-winning filmmaker Ondi Timoner travels the world with Lomborg exploring the real facts and true science of global warming and its impact.
Time magazine named Lomborg one of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2004. In 2008, he was named “one of the 50 people who could save the planet” by the UK Guardian; “one of the top 100 public intellectuals” by Foreign Policy and Prospect magazine; and “one of the world’s 75 most influential people of the 21st century” by Esquire.
